juist like the title saids... what are some 2 ohm 6 1/2" comoponent sets? I know re xxx's and orion hccas have some but are there others?

Older Soundstream and some Image Dynamics sets were available in 2 ohm. Juicyrobot on eBay sells some pieced together component sets from premium parts that are 2 ohm.

I researched this a lot when i was looking but decided against the 2-ohm due to a limited selection. Why do you need 2-ohms?

I remember the Soundstreams.....but I have not heard a pair in 10 years or so. 2ohm comps are nice it the fact you can use a small 2 channel amp and get plenty of power, but their limited selection makes them not worth it IMO.

Vise versa, are there any 8 ohm component sets so you can run a pair in a 4 ohm mono load?

You can buy 8 ohm raw midbass drivers from Parts Express or Madisound just hook them in parallel. I guess the bottom line is what are you trying to accomplish or achieve by doing this?

I have a Nissan 350z. I am trying to find a set up for my front stage and rear fill. I am only looikng to spend no more than $500 for a set of 6 1/2" components up front and 6 1/2" midbass for the rear. i also wasnt sure the best way to run it. Either a 4 channel amp or a two 2 channel amps but i didnt want the whole setup to cost more than $500. Any suggestions?

For a good baseline starting point, get 6.5" comps up front, ditch the rears, and get a small sub in a sealed enclosure. You can find some great deals on some equipment in the for sale section as well as discount retailers such as onlinecarstereo.com, sonicelectronix.com, hifisoundconnection.com, and millionbuy.com 2 ohm comps are not a must have to achieve a great sounding system.

Hmm, you don't really need 2ohm components to achieve this. No need to limit yourself.

2ohm comps. won't be any better than 4 or 8ohm sets since the lower impedance results in a lower sensitivity also

i know it wont sound any different, i was just trying to get the most out of a 4 channel amp. Would 60 watts per component set, up front really be loud?

not really loud.... but it will be louder then stock stereo

I'm assuming that he wants to get the most out of his amps and put the most power to the comp. set. But it won't make any difference since 2ohm comps will have lower sensitivity than its 4ohm counterparts. Therefore it's perfectly fine to use 4ohm comps. instead of going to 2ohms. Won't make any difference

that is exactly what i mean :)

depends on the speakers and set up in question

OK, If I understand correctly you are saying my 2ohm comps at 93db and an 8ohm set at 87 db are equal? I think I am misunderstanding your thoughts.

i am willing to ditch the rears. the car is tiny anyway. i will be running a pair of tens in a small sealed enclosure for my sub stage. i currently have JL 6.5 TR coaxials up front and the rear. now that i have done research, i realize thats not the correct way. i have an eclipse avn5510 head unit with a built in 5 band parametric equalizer. should i run a 4 channel amp (each channel to each separate mid and tweeter)? is 60-75 watts x 4 sufficient and would i need a serparate eq? any suggestions on a 4 channel amp fr my application? the amp dimnsions cant be larger than 13" - 14" wide and 12" deep cuz of small area to place amp. thanks in advance!

assuming you double the power for half the impedance, a speaker thats 8 ohm will sound no different (spl) than one thats 2 ohm (assuming all things other than impedance constant)

i understand t/s parameters change with different windings..

an 8 ohm driver is quite a bit more effecient than a 2 ohm speaker, because the wire is smaller, you can fit more windings into the effective BL area..

that's what dragnix was saying in his earlier post. so why are you limiting yourself to 2 ohm comps?

No, what i simply mean is that for comparable drivers, the impedance won't matter much as the sensitivity will make up for that. Though the link will explain that much better than I ever can.

Gotcha! Makes sense to me now.
